Where is the Solar Plexus Chakra Located?

The Solar Plexus Chakra is located in the upper abdomen above the belly button. 

Also known as the Manipura Chakra, it is the third of the seven primary chakras. It sits between the Sacral Chakra in the lower abdomen and the Heart Chakra located in the chest. 

It is associated with the color yellow (sometimes you see it referred to as the Yellow Chakra) and the element fire.

The Significance of the Solar Plexus Chakra Location

Due to its location in the human body, the Solar Plexus Chakra is connected to the organs and bodily functions that take place in the abdomen. If you have a Solar Plexus Chakra imbalance, you might experience issues with:

  • Stomach
  • Intestines
  • Liver
  • Gallbladder
  • Spleen
  • Pancreas
  • Adrenal glands

The Solar Plexus is sometimes associated with the Celiac Plexus block which is a scientific term for the group of nerve endings in our stomach. 

The location of the Solar Plexus Chakra also gives us a clue about its emotional and spiritual significance. It’s not only at the center of our physical body, but it is also the center of our personal power and ego.

When you have an imbalanced Solar Plexus Chakra, you might:

  • Be lacking in confidence 
  • Be missing your sense of identity
  • Have low self-esteem
  • Be lacking purpose and direction in your life
  • Feel insecure and unable to assert yourself
  • Feel lost and powerless

If you think you might be suffering with any of these symptoms, there are lots of different chakra healing techniques you can experiment with. Why not try these 10 Solar Plexus Chakra Yoga Poses or 50 Solar Plexus Chakra Affirmations to Boost Positivity and Self-Esteem.
